Maggie May


by Rod Stewart & Martin Quittenton
I:	Wake up Maggie, I think I got something to say to you
It's late September and I really should be back at school
I know I keep you amused, But I feel I'm being used
Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore

D - - - / C - - - / G - - - /    /  x4  / C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / D - - - /
Am - - - - / Bm - - - / Am7 - - - /    // 

You turned me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart and that's what really hurts
The morning sun, when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none, in my eyes you're everything
I laughed at all of your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax
Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore

Am - - - / D - - - /  x2  /  x2  / G - - - /    / 
D - - - / C - - - / G - - - /     / D - - - - / C - - - / G - - - /    / 
     [1 & 2]
C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / D - - - / Am - - - / Bm - - - / Am - - - / Bm - - - //

You lured me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
Your stole my soul that's a pain I can do without
All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a lover and Mother, what a lover you wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed, and in the morning kick me in the head
Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried anymore

You lured me away from home
'Cause you didn't want to be alone
You stole my heart, I couldn't have you if I tried
I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school
Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living out of playing pool
Or find myself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand
Oh, Maggie, I wish I'd never seen your face
[3]
Am - - - /    //

 T:	You made a first-class fool out of me
But I'm as blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart but I love you anyway
Maggie I wish I'd never seen your face
I'll get on back home one of these days

Am - - - / D - - - /  x2  / Am - - - / D - C7 - / G - - - /
G - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - /  x4  // (repeat last two lines as needed)
